State dropped their game on Wednesday night 80-61, a game they were never really in during the 2nd half. They are now 11-5 (1-2) on the year.

Gavin Ware had a big night with 18 points and 6 rebounds, but it wasn’t near enough. The Dawgs took a lot of jump shots which isn’t their game and Bama took advantage with a solid game. Trevor Releford showed why he was the best player on the court scoring 28.

Very surprisingly D’Runnya Wilson entered the game late in the 2nd half with MSU down 20. He tallied four minutes but did not register any statistics.

Alabama did similar things to MSU last year when we started out 2-0. While we’ve seen some good things this year there is no doubt this team and program still have a lot of room to improve. That will get better with time as they are headed in the right direction – big game at the Hump on Saturday vs. Texas A&M at 12:30.
